A. cloud                                          B. smoke

C. gel                                               D. soap bubble


Answer Key:

  1. C

Explanation: Zig-zag path of colloidal particles is called Brownian Movement. Zig-zag path of particles is due to collision of particles of dispersed phase and dispersion medium.


  1. C

Explanation: Ammonium chloride sublimes where as sodium chloride melts on heating. A mixture of ammonium chloride and sodium chloride can be separated by sublimation.


  1. C

Explanation: Freezing of water is a physical change. On freezing only state of water changes its chemical composition remains the same.


  1. A

Explanation: Starch solution because it is a colloidal solution.


  1. B

Explanation: It is between 10–5 cm to 10–7 cm to 10–7 cm (10–9 m)


  1. D

Explanation: Emulsion is a mixture of two immiscible liquids. Milk, Cod liver oil, tonics in liquid form etc. are emulsions.


  1. B

Explanation: Ordinary microscope is used to view colloidal particles.


  1. C

Explanation: It can be either an element or a compound.


  1. B

Explanation: Bromine is liquid at room temperature.


  1. A

Explanation: In cloud, water drops are suspended in air.
